Purple velvet boots, I think Prince would have approved.
This Wednesday we lost Prince. I was at work when Julie Ann told me, I was in shock. I am a big fan, have been since I was a small child and I have to say I'm devastated. Though it sounds ridiculous to feel "devastated", yet you may have felt this way when David Bowie and/or Lemmy died, Prince is another legend gone too soon.
When I would feel down, I would put on a Prince album and just dance. I did the same thing when MTV stopped regular programming (on Wednesday) and played Prince videos, I just danced. I felt like the young girl who was obsessed with MTV and music videos in the 80s/90s, the young girl who was entranced by artist's music videos like Prince. Sigh....
Rest in peace the Purple One, thank you for bringing joy to my world and teaching me that self expression is important and liberating.
Thank you for reading, until next time!
